The Hillbille property has been in the Bettridge family since the late 1980s and has a total area of 59 hectares. After many years supplying local wineries, Hillbille began making wines under its own label in 2003.
The wines of Hillbille are all clean and austere, very much directed towards the European palate, and are all estate-grown. The Hillbille 'Estate' range is contemporary in style, providing excellent structure and balance to a range of classic grape varietals. Within this range are the Hillbille Chardonnay, Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Merlot and Shiraz varieties.
The 'James Brittain' signature range is dedicated to the family's great-great-grandfather James Brittain, whose 'signature' is evident across the City of Perth on such heritage buildings including the Town Hall, Barracks Arch and Cloisters. This series of wines are from only premium fruit, and produced in very limited quantities. Varieties within the range include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz Viognier.
The wines are available to purchase on the Hillbille website and are also exported to Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong.
The cellar door at Hillbille is open from 10am-4pm on weekends and public holidays.
